Planning to give up alcohol in the new year? Here is what happens to your body when you stop drinking

New Year is just a few hours away and we bet you have already made a set of resolutions you hope to follow this upcoming year. Every new year brings forth new opportunities and a fresh wave of hope. If amongst your many New Year resolutions one is to give up alcohol, we are here to help. Have you wondered what will happen to your body when you give up alcohol? Let's learn!

What happens to your body when you give up alcohol?

According to the World Health Organisation, even if consumed in moderation, alcohol can cause high blood pressure, heart and liver disease, stroke, head, neck, and breast cancer. According to experts, the benefits of quitting alcohol can vary from person to person. For those who are light drinkers, they may feel a sense of control over their health after quitting alcohol. Those who are regular drinkers can face pronounced physiologic effects like mental clarity, regulated and uninterrupted sleep, healthy weight loss, and a feeling of detox.

In the absence of alcohol, the liver can properly break down toxins produced by the body, and metabolize fats and excess hormones. You also reduce the chances of a heart attack and other heart-related ailments. Quitting drinking for even 30 days can significantly bring down the risk of getting cancer.

Quitting alcohol also improves your sex life!
